CONCORD – A Louisville, Colorado man was indicted in connection with a firearm offense, U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young announces.

Shelby Theriault, 30, was indicted on one count of possession of an unregistered firearm.  Theriault was arrested on January 20, 2024, and he is currently in state custody. Theriault will appear in federal court in Concord on April 17, 2024 at 2:00 p.m.

According to the charging documents and statements made in court, the defendant knowingly received and possessed a weapon made from a shotgun, with an overall length of less than 26 inches and a barrel length of under 18 inches and did not register this weapon with the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Weapon.

The charging statute provides a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a fine of $10,000.  Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and the Conway Police Department led the investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Tiffany Scanlon is prosecuting the case.  

The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
